Darkness!

Darkness! Ardbeg 21 Years Old PX Finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.10%
7 I wonder if this is a finish that may have had a little too long in its extra oak overcoat?

Darkness! Benrinnes 15 Years Old Oloroso Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.90%
8 I am usually not a huge fan of these big oaky monsters, but this nails the nose perfectly. The dry palate will be a problem for others though.

Darkness! Benrinnes 15 YEars Old PX Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.30%
7 There is a theme running in these samples. Huge merits, but the tannic note takes the edge off slightly.

Darkness! Clynelish 16 Years Old Oloroso Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
8 Absolutely tremendous. Mouth coating, yet easy to drink. It's like the complex band on Later with Jools Holland that you've never heard of but totally fall in love with after one song.

Darkness! Macallan 15 Years Old PX Cask
Single Malt - Scotland - 52.30%
8 A bumper crop of flavours at work here. Superb stuff.

Darkness! Ben Nevis 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 49.00%
8 You might think that it is sherry matured but no, it's 100% American oak aged.

Darkness! Tobermory 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 54.90%
9 A lovely character if you like a good chunk of manure with your malt. Funnily enough, I do!
